Stayed here 2 nights in early May. Very nice, well furnished apartments, sits across the road from the lake/beach. Amazing views of Tongariro National Park mountains. Host was very friendly and accommodating, went above and beyond to fix a minor issue we had. Walking distance or short drive to shops/restaurants of Taupo. Would definitely stay here again!

Room tip: Ask for front unit facing the lake
Date of stay: May 2019

Only stayed here one night but the room was very spacious, quiet and with a good view of the lake.

The location is close to the "CBD" where there are a number of restaurants to choose from and is is within walking distance.

Plenty of off street parking available and right across the road from the Lake.

Stunning location and lake views. Comfy bed with the benefit of a spa bath to unwind in at the end of the day. Really friendly and helpful staff who went out of his way to help us make the most out of our very short stay by sorting out a booking for us on a lake cruise. We wish we’d been able to stay in Taupo longer!

Sails is a lovely motel with great views. The rooms are well equipped and certainly comfortable. There is plenty of parking and lots to see and do in Taupo. The staff are all friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
